A cookbook designed especially for the busy home cook
Perfect Plates in 5 Ingredients
Simon & Schuster Australia
John Whaite offers beautiful, innovative, pared back recipes that are simple to cook but stunning to serve. With only 5 ingredients per recipe (plus the essentials of olive oil/butter/salt/pepper), this is practical, fun cooking. The book is divided into Weekend Morning Plates for breakfasts and brunches, Hearty Plates of comfort food, Every Day Plates for easy week-night suppers, Worth the Wait Plates for slow cooking, Posh Plates for easy, impressive dishes, Many Plates for sharing and finally Dessert Plates for simple cakes and sweet treats. John’s departure from just baking shows his striking talent as a cook with clever ideas for home cooking that will inspire and delight.
A cookbook designed especially for the busy home cook.
This book shares easy to make comfort foods, quick healthy breakfasts that anyone can easily prepare (overnight oats are my new favourite), to lazy weekend brunch suggestions to slow cooked meals and quick mains and desserts. There are vegetarian mains and dishes for meat lovers; there is something for everyone here.
Whaite uses shortcuts like premade pastries, canned beans, batter mixes, Nutella and tin soups to speed up the cooking process and then finishes with flavoursome herbs and spices to really liven up the meal.
Great recipes for those who are time poor.
